Thank You for playing some of the work of Yiannis Xenakis this evening.
In the future, may I request that you pronounce his last name not as a "Z" like "Zenakis", but as "Ksenakis" (the "X" as a "ksss" sound, there is no direct English phonetic translation). As for "Yiannis", the second "i" is emphasized to sound like "eess", not "ess".
